. this was launched 20 years ago. let's talk about this now. meteorologist bonnie schneider is in the cnn severe weather to talk about satellite falling to earth. we've had sprays debris before. this is different because of its size? >> because of the size. that's the concern. you have to realize that satellites and space debris falls every single day every single week. this is the mid point prediction point altitude of 10 kilometers where it's estimated to have fallen all they we may never know where the falling point occurred because it could have occurred anywhere. naturally the most likely place will be somewhere over water since the earth is covered by 70% of water so that's likely what happened over the north pacific. the prediction point was at an altitude of 10 kilometers. that's why we expect this to be a smaller piece and scattered more about. no reports of visuals that you can see confirmed of re-entry. 26 pieces reached the ground of various size. as you mention on average one satellite re-entered the area so small it burns up before reaching the earth. once a week a larger satellite
